Infusing rich textures and an eclectic mix of specialized materials including brass, wood and faux shagreen, Mr. Brown London’s artisanal pieces are “never overly serious,” according to the brand.

Mr. Brown London has various productions teams— it owns its own facility in Vietnam, and sources product in India as well as locally in High Point, NC. As for the brand’s most popular items, “The Belmont Collection has been a show stopper for Mr. Brown since the beginning of the brand. Over time that has not changed as it is still a top ranked item today. Other popular items/collections for our brand are the Durrant Arm Chair, Mercer, Annella and Albaninni Collections,” explains Prevost. In addition to crafting top quality, aesthetically pleasing pieces, Mr. Brown London emphasizes customer satisfaction and vendor/client relationships.
